These yummy popovers are ideal for any occasion! Add basil, dill and thyme or grated citrus depending on your taste or mood.



  • 3 x size 7 eggs
  • 1 cup milk (240ml)
  • 125 gm butter, melted
  • 1 cup (130 gms) all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1½ tsp of fresh or dried herbs/spices or fresh citrus peel of your choice and taste


  1. Pre heat the oven to 220°C.
  2. Beat eggs in mixer bowl on medium speed until foamy. Blend the milk and butter into the egg mix.
  3. Reduce mixer speed to low. Add the flour and salt, herbs or spices; beat until smooth, approx 3 minutes.
  4. Fill 12 pre greased muffin pan cups with the batter – each cup to half full.
  5. Bake in the oven until puffed, well browned and firm – around 35 to 40 minutes.
  6. For crispier popovers, pierce the side of each popover with the tip of a sharp knife, and bake for 3 to 6 minutes longer.
  7. Loosen the popover edges with a knife if necessary and SERVE immediately.


  • Steam makes popovers rise during baking but it will also make them soggy inside if not released. Piercing the popovers when they are almost done allows the steam to escape. A few more minutes in the oven helps crisp them up. Pierce the side or top with tip of a thin knife or wooden skewer.
